Exceptional 1794 Head of '93 Cent, AU55 PCGS

    1794 1C Head of 1793 AU55 PCGS. S-19B, High R.4. This coin was previously offered as lot 5300 in our January 2002 FUN Signature Sale, where it was cataloged as: "Extraordinarily high quality for this rare type, the surfaces are very pleasing with pronounced reddish-brown coloration. The obverse details are a bit weakly impressed, but the coin shows significant portions of original luster. Slight mint-made porosity is seen around the peripheries on each side, but this has little effect on the overall appeal of this lovely coin. The EAC-based Condition Census listed in the 17th edition of CQR is: 40-30-25-20-15-10-8-7."
    Purchased from a coin shop in Peoria, Illinois by Jerry W. Wienzierl, Jr., 2/7/99; Tom Reynolds; Dennis Loring, 3/19/99; Robert C. Clark, 2/00; 2000 ANA Sale (Bowers and Merena, 8/00), lot 215, where it realized $13,800; Walter Husak to an unnamed dealer; acquired by the present consignor in a trade for a group of Draped Bust Cents, 6/01.
